Street Detectives

In Computing, we have been learning about Algorithms. We have practiced giving instructions to our friends to follow different paths.

We used 'Kodable' on the ipads to give commands. The children were brilliant at doing this and even managed to reach some of the harder levels!

We started our topic by looking at maps of Blackburn and our local area. We spent time spotting familiar places. We talked about features of our local area that we like and dislike.

Can you spot a railway line?  the canal?  roads?  a park?

We have been finding clues about how our local area has changed. We have looked at what features surround our school and how it is different from the past.

Mrs Baldwin came to visit us in class and we asked her lots of questions about what the school and local area used to be like. She showed us lots of photographs from when the school opened in 1957.
